    Has anyone received the new updated version of Google Maps app on his/her Verizon Galaxy Note 2 yet?

    I've been using the new Google Maps on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet for about a week. (it received
    the update the days after it was released) Frankly, I do NOT like the new version at all.

    I'm a little pissed that they are removing Latitude. I use it several times a week.

    I have it. It takes some getting used to. I still haven't found out how to bring back the + and - buttons to zoom in and out. I have to use the two-finger pinch to zoom now. And the locator is now a dot.

    I received it late last week and I really like it. Better than the old version.

    I haven't received any notification for a Maps update on either my Note 2 or Note 10.1 (auto updates are turned off, so only get notifications). Both are still running 6.14.4.

    From reading the feedback on the new 7 version though, I think I'll hold off on updating for a while.


    Edit: I just got a notification on my Note 2 for Maps 7.02 released today July 17.

    interesting.... I started this thread.... less than 24 hours later, my Google Maps finally received the v7.0 update! (after checking it almost daily for the last week and half)

    I hated the new Google Maps on the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet.... made the fonts way too small to read.

    However, on my Verizon Note 2, the new Google Maps is actually not bad at all.

    Best part about the update is that it is no longer a battery killer. Constant wake locks are gone.

    I got it and I'm not to thrilled with it. Maybe time will make me change my mind...

    What are wake locks? The previous version of Google Maps hasn't
    killed the battery any faster than my other two navigation apps. (TomTom
    and CoPilot, both offline navigation apps)

    The new Map update is wretched! Simply horrible. Messed up the Google Navigation app and Local app. I uninstalled the Map update, and now everything is back to normal for me. Plus the Google Navigation became very unstable with the Maps update, and I kept getting that stupid error message that the app needs to close now due to whatever failure. Did the former (fired) Apple map engineer guy design this new Map update?!? If so, he should be fired again! Haha!

    Wake locks keep the phone awake and wont allow it to go into deep sleep like it should. Uses a lot more battery. With the previous version i was getting a lot worse battery with maps installed. Even with all of the location reporting turned off.

    I hated this missing + and - too... haven't found how to bring them back.

    However, I did discover that a double tap with 1 finger, hold, and move your finger up and down the screen will zoom in or out.

    This is workable for me. I hate the two finger zoom. Impossible to do with 1 hand.

    Still wish they would bring back that + - buttons though. Still more convenient.

    I think Google has a hidden agenda somewhere. They keep throwing new stuff out.(Android OS or apps) Just when you're used to something, you have to learning everything over again.
